The City of Vincent will scale back investigations into a vicious dog attack in East Perth which claimed the life of a small dog after conceding they have run out of leads.
The City launched an investigation after nine-year-old Westie Maltese Mr Moo was attacked by two big dogs in Banks Reserve at 1am on May 3.
Vincent chief executive John Giorgi said today two American Staffordshire Terriers suspected of the attack had finally been found and ruled out of the investigation.
The City’s rangers showed Mr Moo’s owner photos of the dogs and he has said they are not those responsible for the attack.
Mr Giorgi said the City’s rangers had also followed up several leads relating to Pit Bull Terriers from other suburbs but nothing had come to fruition.
“Regrettably, the City no longer has any leads and will now scale back its investigations,” he said.
He said no further action could be taken at this stage but the rangers would immediately follow up any leads they received.
“I am concerned that there are two American Pitt Bull Terriers who have attacked and “tasted blood” still within the community who pose a potential risk.
“I appeal to anyone with information about this case, or the owner of the responsible Pit Bull Terriers to come forward and cooperate with the City’s rangers so we can take measures to prevent this tragic incident from occurring again.”
Those with information are asked to contact City of Vincent Ranger and Community Safety Services on 9273 6000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
